The city of Henderson, Nevada in the Southeastern Las Vegas Valley has a very interesting historical backstory. It was established as a "temporary" town as a place for people to live while working in the production of magnesium for the United States war effort during World War II. The first homes built in Henderson reflected that "temporary" thought. They were townsite homes that could be picked up and moved after the war was over. However, many of the first residents chose to stay and so the homes remained. Eventually, one was relocated to the Clark County Museum and is on display for people to see. Museum Administrator Mark Hall-Patton takes you on a tour so you can see how the first residents of Henderson lived in the 1940s. If you would like to see the townsite home in person and the other Southern Nevada artifacts on display, the Clark County Museum is at 1830 S. Boulder Highway and is open every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. The hours: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Entry is just $2 per person, except seniors (55 and older) and children (younger than 18), who are $1 each.
